CHESTER Jets have completed what is likely to be their final major signing of the summer with a deal for former star Billy Singleton.
Singleton, 35, is the second player to join the club for a second spell this year, joining fellow returnee James Hamilton, who led the club to a domestic clean sweep in 2002.
The burly 35-year-old New Yorker helped Scottish Rocks to a shock victory in the BBL Championship final in May and also tasted success with 2001 winners Leicester.
Singleton, who is 6ft 7in and tips the scales at 18st 4lb, is one of the most experienced BBL stars, having started his career in the UK with Birmingham in 1992, and was with the Jets from 1995-97.
He has also played with Leicester Riders, winning the title with them in 2001, and has had spells in Israel, Cyprus and Ireland.
The arrival of Singleton is seen as the final piece in the Jets jigsaw for a season which starts at Birmingham on Saturday October 4.
Former coach Robbie Peers then brings his London Towers side to the Northgate Arena the following day.
Jets' squad should assemble on September 23 ahead of pre-season friendlies, possibly against Liverpool and Manchester Magic.
Coach Paul Smith said: 'I want to take the pressure off myself. I have good players and now I want to make sure the chemistry is right.'
